Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and decrease the created server load considerably. Every time a page on an app-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a certain page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that entices many viewers, since it will boost its speed and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting account that we’re offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache information, so for numerous sites (or for one single large-sized site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load extra-fast.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated hosting that we are offering and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven community website. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to increase the loading speed of extremely heavy sites enormously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing content once it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will distinguish the optimized overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on the server. Plenty of sites use the Memcached system to boost their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
